Talal Sabbagh, a Seattle hiker, was last seen hiking in the Paradise area of the park on June 21, NPS said. The NPS said it is coordinating with rescue groups and Sabbagh's family on the search.

The NPS has not requested any public assistance as its teams search for the three men due to hazardous conditions in the area.

Bunker is missing near the Liberty Ridge area of the mountain, which is where six hikers were killed in 2014.

The NPS said it is unable to deploy a search on-foot to the area due to weather.

"The terrain below where Bunker went missing is near the location of the Liberty Ridge tragedy that claimed the lives of six climbers in 2014. It is very steep, terminates in cliffs, and is known for frequent avalanches and active rockfall," NPS said in its press release. "This, combined with the broken surface of the Carbon Glacier, will prevent the deployment of ground teams in this search."

Helicopter searches in the Liberty Ridge area will resume "early next week" when weather is predicted to be more stable, the agency said.
